Iran announces sanctions against US and UK companies and officials

Tehran, May 2 (Prensa Latina) The Iranian Government announced on Thursday a series of sanctions against US and British entities and officials over their support for Israel's military operation in Gaza, where more than 34,000 Palestinians have been killed.

Among the US institutions under the Iranian sanctions include Lockheed Martin Corporation, General Dynamics, Skydio Engineering Company, Chevron, and Kharon Company for supplying weapons to Israel.

The officials sanctioned include General Bryan P. Fenton, head of US Special Operations Command, and Vice Admiral Brad Cooper, commander of the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet, among other individuals.

British Grant Shapps, Secretary of State for Defense, and other senior military officials, and five companies were also sanctioned by Iran.

The sanctions prohibit those individuals and companies from entering Iranian territory, ordering the confiscation of property and assets, and blocking bank accounts in the country.
